Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 11.1.1.7.0 version, On Test instance.

Calculated columns show wrong results when report is executed but shows correctly in Layout Editor. For example:  Defined following formula on 'TRANSACCIONES PTD' column.

The TRANSACCIONES PTD column displays '0'. As per the xml data, the TRANSACCIONES PTD column should display 6.5.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create report with a calculated column TRANSACCIONES PTD.

2. Define following formula for column TRANSACCIONES PTD.
    SUM(TOTAL_TRANSAC)/(COUNT(ID_TIENDA)*SUM(DIAS_OPERATIVOS))

3. The results from Layout editor shows correctly TRANSACCIONES PTD column value as 6.5. But when the report is executed, the TRANSACCIONES PTD value is displayed as '0'.
